PITTSBURGH, Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Fire safety protocol for hospitals and other public buildings requires closing internal doors to contain flames. An inventor from Bronx, N.Y. who is also a fire safety officer, however, was faced with the challenge of keeping doors closed that she could not lock.
Therefore, she developed a prototype for MILLER SECURE ACCESS BAR to keep staff and visitors out of vacant patient rooms or other areas that have doors without locks. As such, it facilitates safety and crowd control in the event of a fire. At the same time, it eliminates the need to add permanent locks to doors and does not cause any damage to the doors. It is also easy to install and remove as needed. In addition, it is convenient, effective and affordably priced.
The inventor's professional experience inspired the idea. "As a fire safety officer in a nursing facility," she said, "I needed to find a way to secure vacant hospital rooms or units that had doors without locks in order to keep staff and visitors out."
The original design was submitted to the Manhattan office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
